Galveston Arts Center presents "Gardens and Graveyards," "Plastic Planet," and "2,524 Earthquakes This Past Year" opening reception
Galveston Arts Center presents three new exhibitions:
- In the downstairs main gallery, "Gardens and Graveyards" is a multimedia installation by Austin-based Jules Buck Jones and his collective Animal Facts Club.
- In the upstairs 1878 Gallery, Calder Kamin creates sculptures of animals made from plastic bags in an effort to call attention the proliferation of this material in our environment for the exhibition "Plastic Planet." The exhibition includes hands-on activities and workshops in Kamin’s "NeoCortex Classroom," providing visitors an opportunity to better understand problems facing our planet.
- In the Brown Foundation Gallery, Fort Worth-based multidisciplinary artist James Talambas presents a sound installation titled "2,524 Earthquakes This Past Year," referencing seismic activity in Oklahoma and North Texas.
These three shows mark the curatorial debut of curator Dennis Nance. Following the opening reception, the exhibits will be on display through May 28.
